Cell Booster

PostedDecember 15, 2012
Yes, I would recommend this product
Easy to install and on my iPhone AT&T I went from 0-1 bar to 1-5 bars depending on where I am in the house. You cant be to far from the booster such as in another room then you lose the bars but it still works with no more dropped calls. As for Verizon I had 1-2 bars now I have 4-5 all through the house so in reality it all depends on how strong the signal is outside for it to work inside. I however am not overly pleased with the sound quality as sometimes it sounds as though people are talking in a tunnel though people listening to me on the other end say I sound crystal clear.
Pros:personal use, business

Not a great product

PostedOctober 6, 2012
No, I do not recommend this product.
I could not justify the money spent on this booster/extender. It was set up properly according to the manufacturer's specifications but I had to place and receive all calls within 5-6 feet of it. Not worth the money unless you plan on talking from the same spot in your house. Definitely needs reengineering of the indoor part of the booster. The actual cell signal pickup was good, again when I was right near the booster. Other than that, nothing.

The box works well

PostedDecember 23, 2011
Yes, I would recommend this product
I installed this box on a tugboat. Because of all the steel on the boat we were unable to get service inside, even while in the heart of New York City. One thing you have to understand is that the box itself will not improve your reception. You need to have signal at whatever point you place the antenna. If you have signal where the antenna is the box will then be able to take that signal and broadcast it wherever you place the box. In our case, it takes us from no service to full bars on 3g, 1x, and evdo. The box does not do 4g and it does not do nextel. It works well for verizon, at@t, and t-mobile, and sprint. It also works very well on aircards

I get very few bars and have to stand right by it. I think if you have SOME service in your area it may help.

Amazing Signal Strenght

PostedOctober 8, 2010
Yes, I would recommend this product
I just plugged in my new YX545 and my cell signal strength went off the charts! I use a BlackBerry and normally get about 2 bars. The cellphone works fine in my home office but signal quality can be questionable. With my new 545 unit my bars maxed out at 5. I just made a couple of calls and the sound quality is super.
I also the Verizon MiFi device for our Internet connection. My Internet connection works fine for Browsing and email but I typically need to stay away from Streaming, Rich Media Sites. I just tried a couple of YouTube videos with the 545 and they were perfect, no skipping or waiting on the stream to catch up.
And it only took me about 20 minutes to set up. Very easy. Great Product!
Pros:steaming, voice quality
